To have access to her talent and leadership to advise us through 2021 and beyond is fantastic and will further our mission to become the industry’s leading productivity software for teams that travel.”

I am passionate about building companies - companies that people love to work at, that people and companies love to do business with and that make a healthy profit for their owners/investors. To be able to put my experience to good use and help steer the direction of this innovative travel product is really exciting. Now more than ever, travel managers and coordinators are having to do more with less and productivity software is a great solution.”
